Publisher's Summary

Make a list, she said. It'll be easy, she said.

Deputy Jesse Maddox's reputation in Beach Pointe is...less than stellar. He thought following in the footsteps of his late father, a former cop, would make up for it. Not quite. Every time he closes his eyes, his past is there to haunt him.

After falling asleep on the job (again), the sheriff gives him an ultimatum. Get counseling for whatever's keeping him awake at night or get out. Jesse would rather have a root canal, but he goes anyway, expecting a big waste of time. What he doesn't expect is to fall in love.

Leigh Meriwether is so close to earning her counselor's license, she can taste it. But when Deputy Maddox walks in, she second guesses her career choice. The horror stories she's heard from her clients about him are enough to make anyone cringe. Despite her reservations, she gives him a game plan: make a list of people he's hurt, apologize, and make amends. Simple enough.

What's not so simple? Uncovering the real man hidden within. What's worse? Falling for her own client.

The reformed bad boy

Jesse is a deputy sheriff in a small KY town...he's having trouble sleeping and, after one too many incidents, is sent to mandatory counseling. Leigh is 'this close' to acquiring the required amount of hours before she can earn her counselor's license...and not have to put up with her sleazy boss. During Jesse's first visit, he confesses that he was somewhat of a he!!raiser during his teens...and most of the small town were his victims...this is part of the reason he can't sleep. Unbeknownst to him, most of those ppl are also Leigh's patients, trying to recover from Jesse's teen pranks. One in particular was so funny that I was LOL during my commute and attracting strange looks from fellow drivers...it involves the pastor's wife, her chickens and church bbq...trust me, you need to read this!!! Leigh tasks Jesse with apologizing to the wronged ppl...should be simple enough, right? Heheheh...not so much. Over time, Jesse and Leigh get close, while not quite crossing that patient/counselor line. There was trauma in both of their lives as young children and as such, trusting others is quite difficult. There is also some drama with Leigh's boss, a creepy patient, and the sheriff's wife. Oh, and eventually an HEA. Great book that did not disappoint; and the narration was awesome.

I LOVE THIS AUDIBLE!

Amazing story. Full of feelings from bad to good to amazingly beautiful. When I listened to the love scene it had me breathless then in a heartbeat I was laughing only to have it leave me in tears from the tenderness and love you could, for those who have true love., relate to on a personal level. I've never had a book make me feel lucky to be alive and loved. Thank you for that.

The narrator is excellent with a soft sexy voice that brings emotions into the story bringing it to life.

I received a copy of this audible free at my request and I am thrilled to give my honest unbiased review.

A Great Book That Took Me By Surprise!

Where does Jesse's List: A Beach Pointe Romance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

***I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review***Right from the very chapter, this book held my attention. It has the right formula for a good romance: humour, heartache, a bit of dark history and redemption.

What other book might you compare Jesse's List: A Beach Pointe Romance to and why?

I honestly couldn't tell you. This book made you feel good without being overly "fluffy".

Have you listened to any of Laurie Catherine Winkel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't heard Laurie Catherine Winkel before but I think she did an excellent job narrating.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A last chance at redemption...

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the book from the first chapter. The characters were relatable and you really felt for them. The book made me laugh and gush but it didn't go overboard with soppiness. Best of all, it kept my attention.

Cute sweet little romance...

This audiobook was a sweet romance about a police Officer in a small town who is having trouble sleeping, so his boss makes him see a psychologist. The heroine is finishing up her training before taking her final tests to be a psychologist and getting her own practice. She has a lot of clients in this small town where everyone knows everyone else. The hero used to be the town bad boy before he became a police officer and he has a lot of people he owes apologies to for how he treated them when he was a teenager, so when she suggests that he make amends as part of his therapy he starts doing so. Meanwhile, she’s falling for her patient. There are funny moments and poignant moments in this story. Only one sex scene and it’s a mild one. Narration was good, but I’d have preferred a male narrator as well as female. Overall a sweet story with a nice ending!

Bad Cop Ordered to Therapy to Keep His Job


Jesse Maddox' upbringing and behavior left a lot to be desired. He matured a lot but was riding the line of 'not caring' when his boss told him to seek counseling or the Sheriff would be looking for a new deputy.

Reluctantly he went to see Leigh Meriwether, an intern finishing up her last days to becoming a licensed counselor. Her solution to making Jesse care about himself and others? He must make a list of 10 people that he had hurt in the past and try to help them by apologizing and making amends.

As he meets with Leigh and tells her of his progress, the walls of professionalism start to crumble a bit for both of them. A cop who is only doing what he must to keep his job and a counselor who CANNOT be more than a sympathetic encourager… What will happen as the appointments play out?

A great story with an ending that was a bit cheesy for my taste (but I'm not the sentimental type) A solid 4 stars.

Laurie Catherine Winkle's performance was a bit slow but I sped it up a bit and she is very good. Winkle has a pretty strong southern accent. Her narration receives an above average 3.75 stars

bad boy goes good

An interesting story of a bad boy turned good. It starts out slow, but it picks up soon after and revealing the story behind the bad boy turned good and his recovery from insomnia. Who knew that doing the good deeds for those he wronged in his youth will help him ease his conscience? As he finds out, and all of them forgive him, some sooner, some took some convincing, it does the trick and gets the girl too in the end. They both get their HEA and their journey has some heartache, some suspense and a few hilarious moments. Love his grandfather's character, he is hilarious.

My first listen from Ms. Winkel and I enjoyed listening to her voicing the various characters, the hint of southern gave authenticity of the small town which I appreciated. Will be looking for more.

Bad Boy Gone Good

If you could sum up Jesse's List: A Beach Pointe Romance in three words, what would they be?

Second Chances, Belly Laughs, Redemption

Which scene was your favorite?

I loved the Scene(s) at Jesse's Pond as they were really focused on Jesse and Leigh letting down their guard and getting to know each other. You also get to know more about each of these character's back stories in these times they spend together. You fall a little more for the softer side of them during these times.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, there was plenty to keep me interested in this book so I could have easily listened to this book in one sitting if outside priorities would have allowed me to. It isn't overly fluffy and has enough drama and humor in it to keep you interested as well. Jesse's story is quite cute while he is working on forgiveness and listening to how things go wrong...that in itself kept me wanting to listen to hear what was next for him.

Any additional comments?

I loved this book! There is a sweet love story, humor, redemption, hope, forgiveness and so much more. Mysti Parker did an awesome job with this book and brought some characters (Tyler and Garret) from Mann Cakes into this book to add to the small town flavor. She writes endearing characters that are flawed and has great whit. Jesse and Leigh both are scarred, lonely and trying to protect themselves. Their relationship was not instant attraction, but grew out of friendship. The narrator did such an awesome job with the various characters voices and accents. One could hear who was talking. This book is a standalone listen. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
